septic pumping with crustbuster

Septic services

Pump That Septic is a holistic provider of septic services. Installation services include basic septic system installations or repairs as well as engineered systems with ATU units with further capacity to connect to drip irrigation systems rather than a drain field to protect environmentally sensitive areas. Real estate service is also offered to provide inspections and detailed reports for real estate transactions. Maintenance plans are provided for ATU clients while routine septic tank pumping and drain cleaning services are scheduled daily.

Options provided for your septic cleaning appointment

Locating the septic tank

To locate a hard-to-find tank we flush a pill that emits a sonar signal to our detector. This allows us to discover the location of the tank when the sonar emitter arrives.

Digging Services

For many septic tanks the access lid is buried a couple of feet underground. Our service team can dig to this access point for an additional fee.


Septic tanks frequently contain a hardened mat of solids which make its removal difficult. The crust-buster breaks up this mat allowing the service operator to remove the solids from the septic tank.

Clean Service

How things are done is just as important to us as what is done. The Pump That Septic service providers wear uniforms, use new equipment, and are service oriented professionals.

Access Riser Upgrade

Access Risers are installed at an additional cost on the septic tank if requested (This is recommended for ongoing maintenance of tank and cleaning of effluent filter).

Hands-free payment options

Safety first! Hands-free payment is provided for convenience and safety.

What is the rule of thumb for routinely scheduling a septic tank cleaning?

This graph provides the average calculation between users and the size of the septic tank. However, other factors can also influence pumping frequency such as strength of bacteria in the tank as well as water usage.

Access Risers

Your access to easy maintenance

Tired of digging up your yard every time your septic tank is cleaned?

We can install a riser with a sealed lid that provides ground-level access to your tank for inspection and pumping. It is also a good visual reminder of the need to maintain your septic tank through pumping.

Why is the crust buster necessary for proper septic tank cleaning?

The Crust Buster is a  machine designed to efficiently mix up septic tanks as well as tough and time-consuming grease traps. It circulates and agitates the crust, liquids, and solids into a total liquid form to facilitate the cleaning of the septic tank or grease trap. The use of the Crust Buster comes standard with every septic tank cleaning service.
